Convert WAV to MP3

What is WAV (WAV, WAVE Audio (.wav) Waveform Audio File Format (WAVE or WAV) is a file extension for an audio file format developed by Microsoft and IBM, for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It has become a standard audio file format for system sounds (clicking, errors, shutdown, etc) and even CD-quality digital audio. WAV files can store sounds such as music, voice recordings, information about the number of tracks, sample rate, bit depth, and whether it is mono or stereo. WAV files contain uncompressed audio, so these files are large and sharing them on the Internet is very uncommon. What is MP3 (MPEG-1 MPEG-2 Audio Layer-3 / .mp3) MP3 is abbreviated from MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3. It is a coding format that uses a compression algorithm to squeeze a series of sounds into a much smaller file (about 8% of the original size) while preserving the original level of sound quality even though some of the source’s data is lost during the compression. MP3 compression removes these parts of the sound that are considered to be beyond the human auditory field and for the average music listener, the loss in quality is not noticeable. The remaining audio data is then recorded using MDCT and FFT algorithms. MP3 compression can achieve a 75 to 95% reduction in size compared to CD-quality digital audio. MP3 is the most widely used audio file format for download-and-play purposes. Windows and macOS users can play MP3 files without the need to install any third-party software. Most Common MP3 players are Winamp, iTunes, and mpeg123. There may be times where you need to convert an existing WAV document into the MP3 format or convert an MP3 document into a WAV file format. Here you can find a very good solution.
